Ideas For Quilting

For The Beginner

Creating something from nearly nothing is a great pleasure for a quilter.

What catches your eye when you walk through a quilt show?

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder but it is still fun to walk through a quilt show with your friends, talking about each and every detail of the quilts. You can dream about how much fun it would be to make one of your own in your favorite pattern.

Even though you might not agree on which quilt is the "best of show", you will still be dazzled and inspired by the talent and creativity of the quilt makers.

WARNING!! Quilt making is addictive!

Quilt making is a passion that is a gift to us like planting those seeds is to a gardener. An interest in quilts can be the magic carpet that takes you on a trip around the world.

What is quilting?

Technically speaking, Quilting is a series of small, straight stitches which forms the quilting design.

Does it feel like there is so much to learn about quilting?

Does it sound like it would be too hard?

Where do the ideas for quilting come from?

I hope to challenge you with how to make a quilt instructions, beginner quilt patterns, ideas for quilting, projects and techniques that will inspire you to join the quilting family.

Many quilt blocks are traditional and have been around for many years. The traditional quilt patterns and the new variations on the old favorite block patterns are the most popular of all quilt patterns. The variation of quilt blocks use simple shapes to build complex looking quilts.

The ideas for quilting are unlimited.

There are so many quilt patterns out there it is hard to know where to begin your first qullt. There are the traditional or antique quilt patterns such as the log cabin quilt patterns, Jacob’s ladder, wedding ring pattern, broken dishes and the nine patch just to name a few.

Color is the key to turning triangles, rectangles, diamonds, circles and squares of fabric into works of art.

If you are already a part of the quilting family and have made a “scrap quilt”, please send me a picture of your work. I would like to share your accomplishments with our friends.

The hardest part is trying to decide on which quilt pattern to do first. So let’s try a few beginner quilt patterns together.

Just remember…… A quilt is the dazzling result of your efforts.
